We stopped in a local candy store called Blooms, which, to be honest, felt more like an airport stop candy shop than an old fashioned candy store like the website promotes. Nevertheless, the kids knew no different and enjoyed picking out something sweet--both chose lollipops, which was the best thing Curren could have chosen as it kept him occupied the whole time.
The downtown Carrollton area was cute, with a few restaurants and antique shops. The last picture highlights a shop door with a bird on it and I couldn't resist taking a picture of it in honor of my friend Nicole. She introduced me to the video shorts Portlandia and one specific episode is how we are so obsessed with all things birds in this culture: "Put a bird on it!" It's a *hilarious* short and if you have 2 minutes, you need to watch it.
